The Prodigy trailer: Taylor Schilling leads the new horror film
Orion Pictures has released a new trailer for their upcoming supernatural horror thriller The Prodigy, from The Pact director Nicholas McCarthy. While the trailer doesn’t reveal much, and mostly shows a hypnotherapy session to help understand the evil the characters’ are about to face, it does offer one solid jump scare near the end. You can check out the trailer in the post below!
The film follows Sarah, a mother whose young son Miles’ disturbing behavior signals that an evil, possibly supernatural force has overtaken him. Fearing for her family’s safety, Sarah must grapple with her maternal instinct to love and protect Miles in favor of investigating what – or who – is causing his dark turn. She is forced to look for answers in the past, taking the audience on a wild ride; one where the line between perception and reality remains blurry.
The film stars Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black) as Sarah in her first foray into the horror genre, as well as Jackson Robert Scott (It, AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead) as her son. It also stars Peter Mooney (Burden of Truth), and Colm Feore (Thor, Pearl Harbor).
The film is set to hit theaters on February 8 of next year.
